Because all good things need an intro....
You have either arrived because you've heard about this blog on a podcast or a webboard or in an e-mail from me. Thank you for coming.
Now: why are we here?
This blog serves two purposes.
1. It is an outlet for my voicework and disneyana addiction. :)
2. It is a source of inspiration regarding my health goals - and a way for you to help me.
I've decided to lose a lot of weight. I need to for my health (more about this if you want specifics in a future post). But also I want to help others and set some lofty goals.
So here they are:
By January 2009, I will be in good enough shape to run in the WDW Half Marathon.
And I will support Lou Mongello and the DWT tem in their efforts working to fulfill dreams for cancer patients.
How you ask? That's where YOU come in.
I need your support. Help me. Here's my side of the deal:
I promise to: a) diet and exercise in a health promoting way; b) update this space quite often (daily if I can) with my progress and other fun related stuff (including current weights and pictures); c) respond to any/all posts you make here.
Here's what you bring to the table:
a) Support. You all know me from MouseTunes and the boards and other places - reading this blog and hearing your comments will make a world of difference. I don't want to let you guys down on this - so let me hear you care!
b) Sponsorship. This is the fun one. If you're willing to pledge an amount per pound I lose (as much or little as you like) - I will set up some method of collecting on a monthly basis. You can pledge by the month, by the day, or just a one-time donation. ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE DREAM TEAM which will help a young person afflicted with cancer to see their dreams come true on a Disney World Vacation. I'd like to personally be responsible for at least ONE trip. YOU CAN BE A PART OF THIS.
So...what do you think?
Am I crazy? (probably)
Will you help? (I hope so!)
Okay guys - let's hear from you! If you're willing to support me - I will do an initial weigh-in and picture for reference on Monday 1/29 - and then the race starts!
